The Season Determines Prices,
Weather and More

Here's how the seasons are viewed in the Caribbean.

When it turns cold in North America and Europe, the Caribbean becomes a lot more expensive. Hotel prices double or triple every December 15 and don't come down until April 15 or May 1.

Visitors to the Caribbean are willing to pay premium prices to flee the cold back home.

However, Caribbean weather generally is good year-round. If you are more concerned about spending your funds on activities rather than on hotels, consider the end of April through May, a period of lower rates that typically offers prime conditions with clear skies and plenty of sun.

There's nothing wrong with summer, the low season, either, except it's hotter and the humidity is higher but on many islands the constant trade winds supply a 22 mph breeze. It may also rain more then, too.

Many island resorts close down for part of September and all of October to refurbish and upgrade. Those that stay open then usually offer good bargains.

November through mid-December are excellent times because hurricane season is over, the islands aren't crowded yet and prices are still low. This is also a good period to look for bargain air fares.

On some islands, prices will jump during Thanksgiving week.
